Raiders lose in first round

Cameron 17 March 2008 4

As many of you would already know, the not-so-mighty-at-the-moment Raiders went down in their NRL season opener against the Knights on Saturday.

In a display you would typically associate with youth, nerves and inexperience, the Green Machine looked sloppy and had a poor completion rate. The Raiders scored the first try but from there it was more or less all Newcastle. A late rally gave them a hope, but yet again they couldn’t convert.

It is of course only the first round, and we can certainly expect better performances from the boys ahead, but coming up against the Knights (who are just as out of sorts as the Raiders) the side would have been hoping for a much better start to the season.

Did anyone make the trip to Energy Australia Stadium for this one?

I’ll be at CUA Stadium next week to watch Canberra take on Matt Elliott’s Panthers. Another away game, but again: one the Raiders could quite rightly expect to win.

That’s a great idea. I’d be in it 😀

I think we’ve missed the opportunity this year (given R1 has passed and it would take weeks to organise) but next year, let’s run a RA Tipping comp 🙂

I watched this at the pub while I was in Melbourne for the Grand Prix. Disappointing I must say. Although, I was more disappointed with the Sea Eagles loss and the Mark Webber DNF

They kept making errors. They were going fine for a while, then they just screwed things up at the worst possible times. I’m so sick of them losing the ball. They lost it about 30 times. They should have won that match, but their handling errors kill them, every time. It’s NOT good enough. They also need a proper goal kicker. And, what’s with the forward passes, STOP IT. If the pass isn’t on, DON’T PASS IT!!!!!!!!!!
